Maximizing productivity should always be at the forefront of an entrepreneurial mindset. It’s not limited to the office either. It should happen no matter where you work from, whether it be home, a coffee shop, or a co-working space. One of the biggest things you want to make sure you have is the right technology to get you there.
We’ve all been there, you’re clocking out of the office and as soon as you get to your next destination, you’re getting client emails, phone calls, and there’s an urgent Zoom meeting you need to hop on. Save yourself the trouble of feeling overwhelmed or flustered in these situations by having the best technology on-the-go as you would have in your office.
Today, we’ve put together some technologies worth investing in so you can work productively from just about anywhere (all products listed are available and can be purchased from Dell).
The power of tables is that you can truly take it with you wherever you go at a very easy convenience. It’s like having a mini, portable laptop. You’re able to access the internet, emails, files, and the best part, applications that you probably wouldn’t be able to access on a regular desktop. There are also accessories that you can buy to elevate the experience, such as attachable keyboards, S pens, and wireless mouses.
We love tablets because of the diversity it offers. For example, you can choose to type your notes or use your S pen and write them by hand under your ‘Notes’ app. They also come in various shapes and sizes, so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your field of work and preferences. And, it’s probably good to note that most come with a built-in webcam for all your video chatting needs.
For those new to tablets or aren’t in high-demand of them, a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite could be just what you need. However, if you’re going to be using it a lot (typical amongst graphic designers, interior designers, or any type of creative position), you might want to look into the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6.
Have you ever misplaced your phone as an important call was about to take place? Or, have you lost it and never found it again? With the invention of smartwatches, many entrepreneurs have been able to track more progress, be more alert to electronic notifications (emails, texts, calls, etc.), and find their phones when it’s lost just by pinging it. To put it short, the convenience of a smartwatch does almost everything a smartphone does.
With a smartwatch, there are three main ways it helps entrepreneurs on-the-go. First, it helps productivity as many products can turn into a personal assistant. You’ll have business reminders at your fingertips, you can schedule appointments, and set it up to push the right industry news to your screen. Secondly, it helps with fitness aspects that lets you keep track of your steps, calories, and more to help reach your health goals throughout the day. So, no more standing desks and ergonomic chairs to hope you reach your goals. Lastly, it helps with time management. You can prioritize tasks, check your Google calendar, monitor traffic, and have real-time notifications of anything you need.
If you’re new to smartwatches and want a simple, yet effective model, try the Samsung Galaxy Active 2 BT. If you’re wanting a more sleek design, try the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2. Just watch how the impact of turning your smartwatch into a personal assistant boosts your productivity.
If you find yourself running around with multiple chords for your phone charger, headphones, USB, hard drive, etc., then this is the perfect product for you. Docking stations put all that and more into one easily transferable device that’s universal with many electronics.
This little product can make a big change in your work life. It allows you to go beyond the inputs your laptop or tablet may have, and be the most productive version of yourself. Also, some laptops and desktops only support a specific type of USB or input, but a universal docking station allows you to use just about any type. This will save you a lot of time - and possible headaches - if you make use of your laptop’s ports often.
For those wanting to start with a simple docking station, or if this isn’t one of your big concerns while working on-the-go, try the Dell Docking Station - USB 3.0. But, if you’re in need of more ports and use multiple inputs often, try the VT4500 - Dual Display 4K USB 3.0 & USB-C Docking Station.
There are a lot more technologies that could elevate your productivity working on-the-go. The best thing to do is to take a look at your current operating system and see what role technology plays in it. Then, decide how you can elevate those experiences with better products.
